Homemade Chia Seed Pudding

Beth Renzetti


I am very excited about this recipe. I've heard amazing things about chia seeds such as - it can be used as an energy boost, an appetite suppressant, maintain blood-sugar levels, and help regulate digestion, to name a few. Per serving, Chia seeds also have more calcium than a glass of milk, more antioxidants than blueberries, and more Omega-3s than Salmon.
Other ideas are - Soup thickener - add a TB or two of chia seed to your soup until the desired consistency is reached. Use in meatloaf instead of breadcrumbs! Sprouts in a salad - place seeds on a wet paper towel for a couple days.
